Quick info

Tour name: Volcano & Glacier Walk

Age limit: 10 Years

Duration: 10-12 hours

Physical rating: 2/5

Pick up: Available from Reykjavík between 8:00 - 8:20 AM

We set out from Reykjavík, taking the road east towards the Eyjafjallajökull Volcano. There we head inland in the direction to Þórsmörk and all the way up to Gígjökull, an outlet glacier that falls down from the Eyjafjallajökull Crater. Here we can get an idea of the forces at play in the 2010 eruption as the impact of the eruption is still very visible on the glacier and the area around it.

Continuing east we come to Sólheimajökull glacier where we go for a short and easy Glacier Walk up onto the ice field (1h30). As we learn more about the Icelandic glaciers we examine the wonderland of ice sculptures, ridges and deep crevasses.

On the way back to Reykjavík we visit the impressive waterfalls, Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss.
